    "Meh."
    What did you love best about The Spirit Clearing?

    This was my first introduction to Mike Talbot outside of the Zombie Fallout series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Tufo? Why or why not?

    Of course. I'm hooked.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sean is amazing. I can't imagine another narrator for the Talbot and company.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted to cry but unfortunately I never really connected with anyone except for Mike. Sure, it was sad, and other people reviewed that tears were spilled...but It was too easy to discover the twist and the magic was lost.

    Story
    "Sad, Creepy, with Ending like No Other!!!!"
    What did you love best about The Spirit Clearing?

    It gave a deeper, emotional look into the Mike Talbot that we ALL thought we knew before...But apparently, Mark Tufo knew he needed to take this character to a deeper, darker depth of sadness, loneliness, and despair (With a Big helping of Sarcasm) just when things were looking positive, just for our enjoyment. As a "spiritual sensitive", this one hit home for me more than any of his other stories, because often when encountering spirits trapped in between "our world: and the "after-life", I can feel their despair, confusion, and unfortunately, extreme loneliness, and it is painful and draining on my own soul. I loved the, "Tufo" style of overlapping characters from other stories in his series, even if they were brief. I always get a feeling of familiarity and clarity when he does that.


    What other book might you compare The Spirit Clearing to and why?

    I don't think I have ever read a story quite like this one, it was a new experience for me, and a welcomed relief after listening to the twisted tale of Timothy and the bewildering saga of Callis Rose (Must reads ALSO!!!)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't spoil the story for future readers...It's All good, every bit of happiness, sadness, fear, and especially the "ever explaining" conclusion....


    If you could take any character from The Spirit Clearing out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Besides Mike?? He would be my FIRST choice, but other character would be Jandolin, she seems like the kind of women I respect and would get along best with. Now her Mother, I would take her to the back of the barn and bash her skull in with shovel...But it ALL makes sense in the end!!


    Any additional comments?

    If you have ever wondered what possibly happens during the "in-between spaces" of life and death, this is a MUST READ!!!!

    "Another hit for Mr. Tufo"

    I started this thinking one thing and then found my self wondering if x was gonna happen, then thinking oh i no where this is going, and finally saying (out loud) get the heck out of here. I throughly enjoyed it and gave it more of a chance because of the author, but all in all a good listen.

    ".... Wow ..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Spirit Clearing to be better than the print version?

    Did not read it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Spirit Clearing?

    The end ... the ending ... I just finished the book and I had to log in to convey my feelings ...
    I can honestly say I am speechless ... I feel like I just got off a 2 day marathon of riding an endless emotional roller coaster. The familiar voice of Mike Talbot's witty sarcastic humor punching through an endless sea of horror and misery. I feel like it was two books in one the first half is a Romeo and Juliet tale that somehow gracefully spins into a horror flick that had me so captivated I listened to it non-stop and had it done in less that 48 hrs.


    Any additional comments?

    This brings Mark Tufo to a new level... not only can he write some of the best Sci-Fi Thrillers that keeps me coming back ... but now he is in my ranks of upper echelon of horror thrillers!

    "Another Must get by Mark Tufo"
    Would you listen to The Spirit Clearing again? Why?

    Yes. It was a very touching story. Love reconecting with Mike Talbot again in a different book. I miss Mike Talbot, because I have listen to all Mark Tufo's books with him in it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mike Talbot--seeing him in a different way, but he is always the same type of character. Strong, smart, caring, loving, and crazy at times.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love listening to Sean Runnette. I have been trying to find other titles he performs in.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!


    Any additional comments?

    Just another oustanding book from Mark Tufo.

    Yes. The story just grips you and you can't look away.

    The way the author know how to do the characters in his story. He makes you feel like you know them and makes you feel the story.

    I wouldn't. It suits it it just fine to me.

    A big thanks to Mark Tufo. Served his country and now makes incredible stories that you can't help but enjoy. And too Sean Runnette for bringing his words to life for me.

    "Great Story"

    It was fun to listen to another Mike Talbot adventure, very different from Indian Hill and Zombie Fallout. While I loved those two series, I think this is my favorite so far, I could not wait to get back to listening to it. This is much darker then the other stories and while I did like Mike's sarcasm, it was different then the other books. Mark has done a great job, keep up the good work.
